What really gives this plain icing it's flavor is the vanilla that you add. Also a tip for the butter, if you are wanting a white frosting, then use white butter with clear vanilla extract. I used the brown extract and it gave the icing an off-white color, but still was pretty white.
|The blue cast is only because of the bowl I made the frosting in.|
1 cup butter (softened)
8 cups powdered sugar (sifted)
1/2 cup milk
2 tsp. vanilla extract or other flavoring
Cream together half of the sugar and all the other ingredients until creamy.
Gradually add in the rest of the sugar.
